Default UPS still SUCKS!

My package still sitting at a ups facility 15 miles from me since June 2. No updates and no one can tell me where it is. I could easily drive over and pick it up in person but I get no help from UPS CS. I hate ordering anything from MidwayUSA as they only use UPS to ship and it's always 1 to 2 weeks late from what they advertised or stated on the order.
Rant over.

If you know it’s at the facility 15 miles away then go get it

USPS lost my package for 1 month. It was at my local PO.....never left the fooking sorting isle. 30 days of folks walking around it, never even thinking " Hey, wonder why the big box has been sitting there for the last few weeks "

I’ve lost so many packages from Midway it’s sad, the only way I will order using them now is if I can choose to ship Fed Ex. I’ve never had a problem using them. It certainly doesn’t help the idiots plaster their name all over the box’s advertising to would be thieves working for the shipping companies what’s probably inside. Midway is the only company I’ve routinely had issues with time after time so IMO it definitely has something to do with their name on the packages.

This time I’ll add to the UPS rant. After my recent hospital stay I was offered a weeks worth of free meals from Humana. These meals are shipped in a cold pack obviously. Supposed to have been delivered Friday, but the box made it here at 6:30 pm yesterday according to the tracking number. Obviously the food will have to be thrown away. I contacted the shipper and another box is supposed to be delivered tomorrow. We will see.

Meanwhile, UPS does indeed SUCK, not only for this, but for the fact that when you call them they play nice, but nothing ever changes. I’d like to give them a good oilfield cussing, but I’m afraid it would just get worse….

I tried that but they couldn't locate it. So they say. Said it may already be on a truck somewhere. That was yesterday. Today I go to the local USPS office and they don't have it and can tell me nothing either. I think I will call Larry Potterfield and cuss him out real good.

I had a ups package get lost in the local facility. I texted my driver and he went and found it and brought it to me.

Get to know your driver and give him his favorite bourbon for Christmas.

I shipped a package to my FIL in Forney via UPS four weeks ago. UPS lost the package at the Fort Worth facility. I filed a claim and they found it and got it moving again. Next stop was Mesquite and they lost the package there too. LOL

All went downhill when they started channeling local mail away from local offices and instead it ALL goes to the main Dallas Dist. Cntr. first and then back to the local office. Thank you stupid unions!

Still waiting on a claim, I went by the office and told me I needed to speak to a supervisor. Of course they weren’t in that day.

We could go on and on! Ups is a big problem - if your company does not allow any form of a customer service contact other than a call center in Malaysia or India then that tells you all you need to know about them ( which is not good) and that is exactly what ups has to offer! I cringe when I know that I have a package coming through them because they will either loose them or they will be wrecked and I’ll just tell the drivers to not unload it and return to sender !

After you give him a good blue streak, tell Larry “And NO thanks for giving me the business”.

Good luck with that order MB.

Finally got my package. Somehow it went from Dallas to Houston before it made it's way back to Euless over a 5 day period. UPS is a total fustercluck.

Yep, very few issues with Amazon or FedX. UPS is close to every other shipment there is an issue.
